Liverpool starlet target Christian Eriksen has confirmed that the Reds are watching him.
The Danish international midfielder has been earning rave reviews for his performances in the Eredivisie this season, with Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish thought to be one of those looking at the player.
Director of Football strategy at Anfield, Damien Comolli, is also thought to be taken by the player, and first took notice of the player himself while in Amsterdam negotiating the deal to bring Luis Suarez to Liverpool.
18-year-old Eriksen shone for Denmark against England in midweek, impressing with a technically astute performance that was capped with an assist to Daniel Agger. The Liverpool defender could play a part in bringing his compatriot to the club.
Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp is thought to have alerted Arsene Wenger over the player's ability over a year ago, although the Gunners never followed up with a move for the player.
The Ajax ace is already a regular for the Godenzonen, and has experience at domestic, european and international level despite his tender years. He's fully aware of the interest in him, particularly from the Merseysiders.
"Every time Ajax play there are clubs watching me. That's just the way it is. So yes, Liverpool have seen me but I'm not spending time wondering about it."
New Liverpool owners NESV have already shown that they are willing to value the Reds financially, spending over £55 million on striker additions in January at Liverpool.
Dalglish has hinted that more spending could follow as the Liverpool chief looks to strengthen in several other areas, and it's thought that Eriksen would cost in the region of €12 million.
However, with competition rising for the player's signature, Liverpool may have to move quickly if they are to secure the teenager's signature.
